Update 21/08/2020: The full version has now been released!

Ciorcal - an adventure JRPG with a combination of sci-fi and fantasy themes.

One-man studio
Tags: RPG, Adventure, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, LGBT

Synopsis.png

  • Two nations occupy the earth: Kressyda - a democratic republic founded on elemental magical power ("Elemtrisity") - and Bowery - a communist dictatorship led by a hereditary line of Sultans.
  • Following an ancient conflict, the nations isolated themselves from each other for a thousand years. Now, they must come together in face of a challenge to the source of elemental power that is the basis of their respective societies.
  • The story follows two spoilt young socialites from Kressyda who end up on a whirlwind adventure by accident, and two rebellious young Bowerians who they meet along the way.
  • The party travels to the far, unexplored corners of the earth where they are mistaken for legendary heroes and expected to save the world from an invasion of elemental monsters.

  • Original Graphics: All resources other than character graphics and face graphics are 100% original (made by me!).
  • Weapon and armour upgrade system: Similar to FF8, search the world for parts which you can use to upgrade your weapons and armour. Each actor has a set of 10 weapons and 4 possible armours.
  • Orb system: Similar to Materia in FF7, actors attach orbs to their weapons and armour to allow them to use skills. Orbs also add elemental attack/defence, e.g. attaching a Red orb to your weapon increases your Red Elemental attack, and attaching the same orb to your armour increases Red Elemental defence. Additionally, orbs are also used to increase your stats, e.g. attaching an HP orb increases your max HP, attaching an Attack orb increases your ATK stat.
  • No levels! Players do not gain experience or level up from battles. Instead, defeating enemies provides OP (Orb Particles) which level up any orbs you have currently attached. Therefore, stats are built by attaching levelled-up stats orbs. OP also level up your spells. This means stat bonuses and strong spells can be transferred from player to player with ease.
  • Element system: Attacking with an Element has a chance of changing the target to that Element, e.g. using a Red attack might turn the target Red. This adds a tactical challenge as players will not be able to use the same attacks repeatedly.
  • Money system: Monsters don't carry money or items (why would they?!) Instead, you earn money from villagers/townspeople through minigames (fishing!) or ridding their locales of monsters. You can also sell rare objects you find along the way for money.
  • Love system: Decisions you make in the game affect two of the actors' compatibility and end up in a possible romance. This story has LGBT interest.

Download.png
The full game is now playable - see download links below.

Bear in mind this is my first completed RPG Maker project and it was a one-man effort. I did put a lot of work in to it, but I definitely would change a lot about it if I was going to do it again!

The game has been playtested however I'm open to any feedback you have, or just general reviews, comments about the game.


I'm currently working on a new project for MZ - watch this space!

So I've done a lot of work on the game since the last update / demo. Currently looking at roughly 60% complete. I'm hoping to release an updated demo soon!

Here are a couple of teasers - two towns to explore:
Calafort - a trading and fishing port

Cnocsville - a dessert town surrounded by sandstone cliffs

Of course! Just making sure the monsters aren't too puny or too challenging then will send it over. Are you a windows or mac user?
